This week is the week of Orphan Sunday - it is a special day each year that is dedicated to the fight for Orphans. I will be sharing a lot in the next few days about orphans, adoption and having a heart for the needy. Our desire is that God will use Haile to serve Him in wonderful ways! Oh the difference a family makes!

Today starts off the week of Orphan Sunday - it is a special day each year that is dedicated to the fight for Orphans. I will be sharing a lot in the next few days about orphans, adoption and having a heart for the needy. What a difference in her face that a family will make! I pray that God uses our family to lead her into HIS plan and to allow her to become all that He wants her to be!!

This little girl changed our family's lives- I can't imagine what we would have become and what we would have missed out on, if we hadn't said YES!

This documentary on older child adoption will be available to watch until the end of October on-line. It is a must see!
Powerful documentary on older child adoption-gives insight into our two newest kids.
My 2 favorite quotes from the movie:
1. "Everything you know about parenting, is thrown out the window. Just everything you thought you knew about being a parent is just gone. This is so, so hard...."
2. "If your motives are for the warm fuzzy feelings that comes from rescuing a human being, then you won't be fulfilled, because those warm fuzzy feelings are fleeting. Your motivation has to come from faith. You will never know the results until your on the other side".

"Adoption is not the path of least resistance, if you want a safe, manageable life, I wouldn't recommend it. But I wouldn't recommend the Bible either. Jesus has called us to take up a cross and die and remember that this world is not our home...That our reward is coming elsewhere, alright?..... Yes, adoption will cost you, but notice in this text what it cost Jesus to adopt you. You could say this morning I cost a lot." ~Tony Merida

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
